Anybody have a resource for one-word replys that are Historically of interest, or one-word quotes that are the same?
Does this site have a way to find such nonsense?
Does anyone know another site to find such?

It seems like we had this topic over on Quoteland but I'm having trouble finding it.
Quote:
Anthony Clement McAuliffe was Commander of Division Artillery of the 101st Airborne Division when he parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and when he entered Holland by glider, 1944. In December, 1944, due to the absence of General Maxwell D. Taylor, he was acting Commander of the 101st Airborne Division and other attached troops during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium. When they became surrounded and the Germans demanded their surrender, he sent back a one-word reply
"NUTS"
This is probably the most famous quote of World War II. In 1945, he commanded the 103rd Infantry Division until the end of the war in Europe.
